Kogi govt queries paramount ruler over alleged partisan politics
The Kogi State Government has given the chairman of Kogi Local Government Traditional Council, Ohimege-Igu Kotonkarfe, Abdulrasaq Gambo Isa Koto 48hours to clear himself of the allegations of engaging in partisan politics or risk disciplinary action.
The query letter with the date November 22 was signed by the state commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Barrister Salami Monodu Ozigi Deedat.
The statement said :” that you deliberately engaged yourself in partisan role in the just conducted Gubernatorial Election in Kogi State
“This blatant action of yours is a sad contradiction of your expected role as a revered Royal Father of your status.
“The government viewed very seriously, especially that your action, role and participation in partisan politics endangered the security of your domain to the extent that crisis erupted under your watch that led to death of an innocent young lady in addition to several others that were wounded.
The paramount ruler was also advised in the query letter to be prepared to appear before a panel of inquiry that will examine his case very soon.
Efforts made to get the reaction of the royal father proved abortive, but a source from the palace confirmed that he has received the query letter, but not sure whether he had replied to that effect.
